BEHIND THE MAKER
Ceramicist based in Manchester
I have always had a fascination in design, functional objects and how they fit into peoples everyday life. I am a ceramicist working from a small shared studio in Manchester producing hand built and thrown stoneware pots. I strive to make minimal, functional, utilitarian pieces that can be appreciated and used in everyday life. I make pots intended for the dinner table to be enjoyed by those with a love for eating, drinking, enjoying good company and bringing people together. I use natural glazes with simple forms, often allowing the bare clay to be exposed to show it’s simple beauty and raw material. I also create a range of illustrated hand painted ceramics. As every cup is hand crafted and every illustration is hand drawn, every one is slightly different and unique.
